President Joe Biden was clear as mud with remarks during a “Restore Roe” rally at the Washington, D.C., Howard Theater.
“That’s because Roe recognized the fundamental right to privacy that has served as a basis for many more rights that are — were — were to come and to take — we’ve taken for granted of late,” President Biden said Tuesday afternoon. “And they’re ingrained in the fabric of this country: the right to make a decision — the best decision for your health; the right to birth control — the right that I pushed hard and it finally got changed — the married couples in the privacy of their bedroom. Excuse me. The mar- — I’m thinking about the Dobbs — the Dobbs decision.”
Fox News further reported:
President Biden stumbled through an abortion speech on Tuesday and closed by saying, “Thank you, I’m sorry.”
Biden gave the speech on Tuesday during a “Restore Roe” rally held by the Democratic National Committee that was held at the Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C.
Biden, while trying to express his support for abortion rights and Roe v. Wade, said that he “pushed hard” for married couples in their bedroom.
During the speech, Biden also mispronounced Obergefell, when referencing Obergefell v. Hodges, the Supreme Court decision that required states to recognize and license same-sex marriages in 2015.
He also concluded the speech by telling the audience, “Thank you, I’m sorry.”
“I was apologizing for my back, my mother would be very angry. I was talking with people with my back to them. I apologize. So thank you all so very, very much,” Biden said.
The president promised codifying Roe v. Wade would be the first bill sent to the new Congress in January if Democrats gain more Senate seats.
“Right now, we’re short a handful of votes,” Biden said. ” If you care about the right to choose, then you got to vote. That’s why, in these midterm elections, it’s so critical to elect more Democratic senators to the United States Senate and more Democrats to keep control of the House of Representatives.”
